Default If TNA Goes Under, Who Are the Top-10 Free Agents?

A big story/rumor is that TNA is done come September. I for one hope that this is not true. With that in mind however, I would like to know who the top 10 free agents would be if TNA does fold.

My list would look like this.

10.) Jesse Gooderz - Former reality star who has really turned it up as of late. He really could be great in NXT and potentially be a midcard star on the main roster in WWE

9.) Robbie E - This guy just has the look and skills to move further

8.)Eli Drake - Could be gold if given a second chance in NXT

7.) Rockstar Spud - I could see him with Enzo and Cass for some reason

6.) The Hardys - Yes an awesome dream. The Dudleys just came back, why not the Hardy Boyz?

5.) Mr.Anderson - Kennedy, Kennedy. This schtick needs to return to a WWE ring

4.) The Wolves - Yes a revamped Tag division involving the Hardys, Dudleys, Uso's, Enzo and Cass, New Day and the Wolves would be epic

3.) EC3- Ethan Carter deserves a second chance. I always enjoyed Derek Bateman, maybe make him Derek Helmsley and it could be fun

2.) Taryn Terrell - Add her to the Revolution immediately

1.) Bobby Roode- Must add, and not not a straight to NXT add. I mean straight to upper mid card add

Also Kurt Angle as a GM figure would be cool

Here my list and why

10) Gail Kim: still one of the greatest female wrestler in the world. Lack charisma but could be a great trainer for the girls in nxt.

9) bram: here a guy that was let go by wwe because his temper, but he's a great talent and was a better fit in the ascension then viktor, so I could see him come back and take out Viktor so that he could reform the original ascension.

8) ec3: this guy had all the tool to be a superstar but was waste in wwe. He doing a great job in TNA and should be a great pick up for any promotions.

7) rock star spud: here a guy that really as te it factor. For a small guy, he got great charisma and is a really good wrestler. The best part is that he's one of the only guy that still give a damn about TNA.

6) the wolves: simply put a really good team that any promotions should be proud to have in their roster.

5) the hardy's: good be a great part time act for wwe. Especially with the Dudley's back on the roster.

4) manik: that a surprise pick but her a young guy that as a lot of talent and his in prime of his career. The guy could have great match in nxt.

3) taryn tarell: pretty good wrestlers and great charisma, sadly won't be sign in wwe since she pretty much burn the bridge with them.

2) drew Galloway: here a guy that has tremendous charisma and is a awesome wrestlers, his original run as drew McIntyre prove how great he is as a heel and still got a lot of people in wwe that would love to re hired him.

Honorable mentions: Eric young,bobby lashley, velvet sky and Brooke tessmacher. Eric young would be a great asset as a comedy wrestler and buth velvet and Brooke are pretty decent in the ring and could great eye candies in the diva's division. Bobby lashley as become a way better wrestler then when he was in wwe and with is size could be a superstar in wwe.

1) bobby roode: officially the best all around wrestler in TNA could be great in nxt or roh.

Hmm, Top 10 according to whom? Another indie fed? WWE? The fans? Are we talking for just the here and now, or someone who can be a player for at least the next 5-8 years?

In any event, I'll answer as a fan and who I think have the best ability to draw…

1. Kurt Angle, of course.
2. Bobby Lashley, of course.

These two guys would be a "draw" for WWE. They're not necessarily the "best" or have longevity.

Okay, now it gets interesting...

3. Jeff Hardy, who is still incredibly over with fans
4. EC3 -- he's #1 in terms of best free agent with longevity
5. Rockstar Spud -- he would be a great free agent for indie feds, but I only have him at #5 because I can't see WWE wanting to take a chance.
6. Bobby Roode -- best all-around wrestler of this bunch, but he's a little older
7. Eric Young -- like Rockstar Spud, moreso for indies than WWE
8. Awesome Kong
9. Taryn Terrell
10. Gail Kim, Velvet Sky

I don't see TNA going under and if they do I don't even see 10 people from their roster that Wwe would want.(which is why i'm still hoping TNA gets better)
But here's my list:
The ones I would love to see happen:
10) Gail Kim- The best women's wrestler in a decade. I wouldn't mind her and Natalya teaching the "divas revolution" what real wrestling is about. But sadly her and Vince have some heat with each other...

9) Bobby Lashley- One of my favorites and left wwe at the beginning of his peak. (though I see Apollo Crews quickly making me forget ever about Lashley)

8) The Bromans- haha, I really don't see this happening but I would really love for it to happen. Robbie E and Jesse are so are underrated. They aren't given a chance because of their gimmick but they pull it off. And don't get me started on Zema, the dude is extremely talent and has a unique look yet he is constantly being jobbed out in Tna since becoming DJ Z.

7) BeerMoney- Storm and Roode are getting old so if they eventually do go to wwe it will be as a team to keep their longevity. I could see them being given a chance years later if wwe were ever in need of some extra mid-carders but I don't see them being given a real push straight out the back.

6) The Beautiful People-With The Dudleys signing multi-year contracts I can see them eventually becoming trainers and Bubba trying to get his girl signed. And I see the Bella's career winding down so another two women team should be in the works.

The ones I actually see happening(Wouldn't mind happening either):
5) Taryn Terell- I think she was given a shot to wrestle for not even a month before she was fired in the wwe. So I can see her being given a second chance with the awesome work she has put out in tna.

4) The Wolves- Easily the second best team in wwe and tna. With the addition of the Wolves the tag scene could easily gain its old glory back with teams like Dudleys, Wolves, New Day, Enzo&Cass, The Usos all fighting for supremacy.

2&3) The Hardy Boys- I am all for using the past legends to help build the future. Cena and Orton had legends/guys like Flair, Triple H, Michaels, Taker, Angle, Guerrero, etc to help them out while the new guys have Show, Orton, and Kane....

1) EC3-Easily the best asset in TNA. He is a champion and if he would go back to wwe I can see him being given the mega push that Kennedy got(and was suppose to have been given as a face).

I would only really like to see Kurt Angle,Hardy Boyz (both with part time deals),Bobby Roode,and James Storm. The Wolves might be ok but isn't one of them a complete douche? Eric Young or the Beautiful People ive never gotten the appeal of,same with EC3. He didn't do much for me in the original days of NXT as Derrek Bateman. Gail Kim is just like watching paint dry and didn't much for me in WWE either.

I'd hope that they put Velvet with Bubba and D-Von if they sign her, but I honestly think she'd just go to NXT.

I'd think that The Hardys would get the same deal that The Dudleys have now.

EC3? They jobbed him out when he was last there, so what makes people think WWE would actually push him this time around?

If anybody, Kurt Angle is more likely to get the part time gig because of his age, his injuries, etc.

Gail Kim has vowed to never work for WWE again, so there's the answer to that.

To WWE, specifically, or to anywhere else? There's a bit of an inherent flaw in logic in the OP in not specifying this difference. Your responses seem to imply you mean for WWE to look at, but to me, that dramatically undercuts who the best free agents might actually be to wrestling in general — that is to say, every other promotion on the planet who are not WWE.

To WWE, they'd probably see the most value, or value of any kind, in returning figures like Angle, Jeff Hardy, Bobby Lashley and Drew Galloway, perhaps.

To the wrestling world outside WWE, I think the results would be drastically different. I think you’d see companies like ROH, FWE, PWG, DGUSA/Evolve, and others all make pitches to the younger, somewhat more established performers like Bobby Roode, Bram, The Wolves, Eric Young, Kenny King and Robbie E, as well as Velvet Sky, Angelina Love, Gail Kim (who would be of worth to both the independent scene as well a WWE) and Taryn Terrell from the Knockouts division.

I hate top-anything lists, because they always devolve into two users arguing over the subjective nature of these kinds of lists. I find it's much more rewarding to just line-list them out in no particular order so you don't run the risk of fighting over why I have the Wolves listed higher than you do.

Likely there will not be a lot of wrestlers going to the WWE for the
roster is quite full but Kurt Angle would likely be allowed back as
would perhaps the Hardy Boys. Most of the talent will go the ROH
or overseas. Be curious to how Angle would react to a return of
his you suck chant if he returns as a face.

EC3 was just mentioned in a Seth Rollins tweet so perhaps he might
be signed to add more depth to the mid card.

1. KURT ANGLE. Still one of the best wrestlers alive today and while he only has a couple of years left in the ring, he would still be a Hugh draw for any company.

2. BOBBY ROODE. The guy has it all and would be a instant main eventer wherever he went.

3. JEFF HARDY. Still has a Hugh fan base and would also command a main event spot wherever he went.

4. THE WOLVES. Arguably the best tag team around today.

5. LASHLEY. Another main event guy who still has a lot to offer.

6. BRAM. One of the most believable and talented guys on the roster.

7. EC3. Has become one of the best heels in the business today

8. DREW GALLOWAY. Like Bram, Drew is hugely talented and has the abilities to one day be world champion.

9. ROCKSTAR SPUD. Really entertaining and is capable of having some great matches

10. AWESOME KONG. One of the most unique woman wrestlers around today.

Problem is most of the people you mentioned either were released by wwe or had the choice to go back and didn't. Kong cold have gone back there instead of wwe if she wanted to but she didn't. Hardy left them for TNA. Wolves has a shot and passed, EC3 was let go, same with Bram and Galloway and as for Rockstar Spud, is he going to take Hornswoggle's place because there is no Cruiserweight division for him to run in and we know wwe won't push him otherwise unless it is as a comedy act. It isn't that these people don't have talent, they don't fit wwe. IF TNA does do under, they will go to GFW or disperse to the indies because there isn't one company other than wwe who could afford to hire any 10 of them at once, not to long term contracts.
